We Earthlings

What connects us all? Nature and our shared relationships through nature. Recycling the materials we manufacture is essential to reducing our negative impacts on the planet that we call home. Recycling is good for the economy, too, creating more jobs in the recycling industry.

Data source: Each year, the Environmental Protection Agency produces a report called Advancing Sustainable Materials Management: Facts and Figures. The figures about recycling jobs in this We Earthlings poster come from that report.
